NEW RECEPTION ENTRANCE
We are very proud of our new Reception entrance, complete with cobbled stones, black tiled walls and golden lanterns, featuring new lighting with soft
background music. There are some lovely flowerbeds and exotic plants at the entrance. Sometime in the future, I wish for a water fountain as well (hint, hint to Jody) 🙂
But the most important part of the arrival of our guests is the personal and friendly welcome from our wonderful front of house team. Take a bow Julie, Sean, Rory, Ryan in Concierge and all of Ann Marie’s beautiful Receptionists. We believe that check-in sets the tone for the guest experience that is to follow.
THE GARDEN SUITE
What began as a ‘wee extension’ to our Ballroom to facilitate drinks receptions for weddings has turned out to be a rather large but very beautiful new addition to our conference and banqueting facility. The Garden Suite is bright, airy and elegant. The modern bar is cool and colourful. It is the perfect venue for a private dinner party, business meeting or product launch. With its state of the art sound and light system, The Garden Suite is already attracting high-end conference business and bookings are flying in for special birthday parties and social gatherings.
Our Resident’s Reading Room has just had a makeover, which has transformed it into a traditional old Irish pub. Aptly named “Memories @ Harvey’s Point”, it tells the story of Harvey’s Point – the people and the place. And we all love a good story 😉
Given that we are fast approaching our thirty-year celebrations, (2019), ‘Memories’ will be a most interesting place to visit. During the day, it will remain as a quiet area in which to relax, read or simply to take in the views of the tranquil waters of Lough Eske while our romantic couple of swans glide by. This is the place were we host our now famous Saturday evening ‘Meet & Greet’ sessions; a great opportunity to meet the Gysling family, our team and fellow guests.
Some of our carpets have magically ‘disappeared’ overnight and have been replaced by elegant, cool new tiles in warm beige and dark brown colours. It’s a lovely look.
THE BEAUTY TREATMENT ROOMS
Claire Mc Groarty, our resident beauty therapist, offers a great service to our guests. We have recently purchased four new relaxation chairs, which will greatly enhance the experience, pre and post beauty treatments. Also on the wish-list are outdoor tubs at the Boathouse. (Hint hint, Jody and also to Michael, our Financial Controller) 🙂
2017 looks set to be another record-breaking year for tourism in Donegal. With the Wild Atlantic Way as our marketing hook and our Wild Atlantic Welcome as our unique selling point, there has never been a better time to visit Donegal. Good news stories such as being named “Coolest Place on the Planet” by National Geographic and “Ireland’s Hidden Gem” by Independent Traveller have also helped greatly to promote Donegal as an exciting new destination for the leisure traveler. At Harvey’s Point, we have created “Home-made Holidays” which combines visits to top attractions in Donegal such as Slieve League, Glenveage Castle, Magee and many more great places to visit. We also have our famous Dinner Cabaret produced and hosted by Mr. Hospitality himself, Noel Cunningham, and in house activities such as wine tasting, cookery demonstrations and evening entertainment.
We would love to welcome you to Harvey’s Point this summer. We can’t guarantee the weather but we do promise the warmest of welcomes and personalized service throughout your visit. It would be our pleasure to share “Happy Days” @ Harvey’s Point with you.
